Legal Losers

I know, I know. I promised I would be back soon and that was almost 3 months ago. *Sigh* What have I done since then? Gain weight, mainly. Well, maybe not gain, but certainly not lose.

However, last week we started a Biggest Loser at my office. I am certainly one of the largest people here, so I knew I would participate. I am on the team "Legal Losers." Clever, huh? We also have the Fat Fighters, Diet Defenders, and Habeas Porkus. I know, we're pathetic. But we think we're hilarious! Anyway, I weighed in last week and was almost at my highest weight ever. It made me disgusted. But I still only felt the motivation to do things about half-way. I haven't exercised at all, but I did really try to watch what I ate and watch my portions. And the result? I weighed in today and I've lost 3.5 lbs in the last week.

On one hand, I'm obviously very excited. On the other hand, I am incredibly embarassed. I mean, I really only half-assed it this week so if I was able to lose 3.5 lbs, that shows me just how bad I've gotten. I'm DESPERATELY trying to just use this as the kick in the ass I need to get me back on track, for good. But I'm so pissed at myself for getting into this position in the first place that it's hard to try to get motivated. I think this feeling is what has kept me from really trying to get back on track before now in the first place. I really just haven't wanted to acknowledge how far off track and off the wagon I've gotten. Cause then I have to deal with all these emotions and all this anger at myself.

But if I'm going to have to deal with that sooner or later, then it might as well be sooner so I can start trying to get the weight off. So here we go. For real this time.

Welcome back, Caroline! It sounds like you're off to a great start. I've pretty much had to hit the 'reset' button, myself, as I'm also near my high weight.

It sounds like you're getting back on track, and the contest may provide that extra motivational boost. Yay you!

I'm glad to hear you're getting back on track! I've been in the same boat as you...over the last year I've gained 20 lbs back from my lowest weight....and I have to start doing something or it's only going to keep going up! We can try to hold accountable with each other! (and Lauren too!) We all need to get together soon!

Glad to see you're back!!

Kate said...

Well you cant do anything about what is in the past except try to not repeat it. Sometimes life gets in the way of things we want to do. All you can do is push it back! You are a strong person and I know you can do whatever you want to. I have been losing some weight (not much nor quickly) and know it takes a lot of work. Good to see you blogging again!
